This is a socket error. Basically there's nothing listening on the other
end. Ask your network administrator if the Netware server is running CIFS
/ SMB over NetBIOS. That is what jCIFS emulates. JCIFS does not support
Netware specific protocols or any other protocols other than CIFS / SMB
over Netbios.
